FTA: "It remained unclear whether Holmes's professors and other students at his 35-student Ph.D. program noticed anything unusual about his behaviour."

Based on many of the grad students Mrs. Pungent dealt with during her probram, I'd say "regular bathing and social coherence" would count as "unusual"...

Eustacia Vye: Flakeloaf: Eustacia Vye: AFKobel: Eustacia Vye: This is just a quick comment re. tiny infants (not toddlers or small children) in theaters: my ob gyn doctor said to go to see movies when your kid is under six months old because the loud soundtrack actually puts them to sleep. The sound inside the womb is analogous to a vacuum cleaner what with all the breathing and digesting, etc going on. Any older and the sound of the movie will keep them awake and crying. Anyway, I was way too tired too see any movies when my boy was a baby.

Oh, well, I retract my earliest comments. If you're at the movies at the advice of your doctor, please, don't let the fact that there are hundreds of other people paying to see a movie disturb your child's attempt at sleepy time ...

Can we get him a pillow?

Seriously, can we have the name of the doctor who is telling people with infants to go to movies?

I didn't word it clearly, but my underlying point is that a tiny infant will be a silent presence due to sleeping soundly thru the whole movie. A toddler or a young child in a theater showing a scary action film is a ridiculously bad idea. It really surprised me that there was six year old girl among the victims.

Because DOLBY EARMELTER THX5000 UBERSOUND is exactly the same as mom's small intestine after a double pepperoni pizza?

I was skeptical about that as well, but should pregnant women not go to movies either? Are G rated movies like Curious George too loud for toddlers? I still wonder about this little factoid after all these years. Babies are strangely tough and fragile at the same time.


Excuse me if I don't buy the doctor thing. My sister in law tried to tell me her doctor told her that it would be dangerous for the baby if she quit smoking pot when she was pregnant. Didn't believe her either.
//have no problem with pot in most circumstances but not that one.

When I saw Star Wars Phantom Menace on opening day and some stupid woman brought her newborn. By the 6th time in the first hours that she had to leave the theatre because the baby wouldn't stop crying, I yelled "Was it worth saving the $30 on the babysittter? You've missed half the frickin' movie." She was mad. I got applause.

PG-13 - Parents Strongly Cautioned. Some Material May Be Inappropriate For Children Under 13. A PG-13 rating is a sterner warning by the Rating Board to parents to determine whether their children under age 13 should view the motion picture, as some material might not be suited for them. A PG-13 motion picture may go beyond the PG rating in theme, violence, nudity, sensuality, language, adult activities or other elements, but does not reach the restricted R category.


I'm just wondering what the accompanying parents are doing at the theater that makes is suddenly OK for kids under 13 to see the movie.

Why all the hate about people bringing kids to a movie at midnight? It's summer vacation for a lot of kids. What I hate is anyone in the theater that makes a bunch of noise or moves around too much, and that includes both assholes kids and adults. I refused to take either of my children to a movie until they could be still and quiet for it. My 6 year old makes less noise than half the adults in the theater. My 30-year-old cousin, however, is banned from attending movies with me because he talks and laughs loudly through the entire thing.
 
2012-07-23 07:31:15 PM
my take is you can't complain about kids in movies made for kids.

PG is already a movie that I really do think a 6 year old has no business seeing at the theater.

PG-13 movies are typically packed with inappropriate levels of violence. and no, you aren't going to cover their eyes and ears.

Huh. Wonder what the prescident for that is? Actually kind of interested in seeing how that's played out in the past.

Any lawyers of Fark-GED-Lawyers have any opinions?


How about we charge him as a domestic terrorist and then lose him in gitmo? Put that shiat to good use.

IamSoSmart_S_M_R_T: Egoy3k:
Not to blame the parents for the kids death or anything but WTF? Why on earth was a 6 year old at the midnight showing of The Dark knight Rises anyway? What kind of dipshiat brings their young child to a midnight showing of a violent action film? Can you imagine buying a ticket for the midnight showing and then having to sit near some dipshiat's annoying child?

It was covered in another thread, but I got a bigger WTF out of this story:

"The couple gained attention...because they went to the midnight show of "The Dark Knight Rises" with Legarreta's 4-year-old daughter and their 4-month-old son."

"Rohrs described how he lost 4-month-old Ethan in the darkness, gunfire and smoke in the theater and how he had to decide whether to search for the baby or escape the theater himself. He chose the latter."

"Once outside, he debated going back in to find the rest of his family, but then he thought they may be out and he could leave the children orphans if they did get out and he went back in and was killed."

So, he abandoned his baby, his girlfriend and her daughter. Textbook definition of a loser.

AFKobel: downstairs: brigid_fitch: A friend of mine took her 2-month-old to the last Indiana Jones movie. The baby was always REALLY good--never really cried or fussed no matter how loud the noise levels at home got, so figured she'd take the chance. She fully expected to bail if the baby acted up but the kid slept through the whole movie.

Totally cool unless it was a midnight movie.

Disagree. Totally uncool in any circumstance.

Parents cannot be trusted to determine when their crying or fussy child has become excessively unruly. In fact, even if you leave the theater at the beginning of fussiness (yeah, right), you've already disrupted the whole theater too much.

What does "never really cried or fussed" even mean? It sounds like their was some level of crying or fussing. I'm sure "never really cried or fussed" means something different to the person you are speaking of than it does to the rest of the audience who is not entranced with how adorable and special their child is.

Taking babies to the movies should not be treated as a socially acceptable practice.

Be an adult. Learn to be considerate of others. Start by not taking babies or toddlers or children to movies that they cannot hope to understand, and do not belong at.

Sorry I sound like an inflexible dick on this topic, but I love the movies and have had too many movie experiences diminished by innumerable thoughtless, selfish assholes.


To all parents, take your kids and babies to every mobie the quote poster goes to, forever. Let him learn that the world does not revolve around him or his personal preferences, and that being a dick has consequences.

You want to control your theater experience? Watch movies at home. Otherwise, you're in public and can't control what others do. Live with it.

ter·ror·ism [ter-uh-riz-uhm] Show IPA
noun
1.
the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.
2.
the state of fear and submission produced by terrorism or terrorization.
3.
a terroristic method of governing or of resisting a government.

Not everyone in our "post 9/11 world" who kills people is a terrorist and it's annoying when they're called one. No one called the Columbine kids terrorists but of course that was pre-9/11.

What exactly should happen to you ? well, I guess if I don't guess correctly then your anecdote wins. I don't know what seeing adult content does to kids. Neither do you. Maybe you're normal, some farkers would disagree with you.

Your legal guardians took you to adult-themed movies, I would think you'd probably have to make the case that they had your best interest at heart.

JackieRabbit: downstairs: JackieRabbit: Who is the woman who was sitting to his right? I haven't read anything about her. I am thinking his lawyers are going to go for a mental incompetency thing. They have plenty of ammo for this.

I don't know about that. The dude was going for a PhD and by all accounts (many of which I understand haven't come out) he didn't exhibit any crazy behavior. According to Wiki its used in only 2% of felony cases, and is only successful 25% of the time.

Basically you have to be absolutely bat shiat crazy out of your mind, with zero control over your actions. I'm just not seeing it here.

That's just it. He was an honor student as an undergraduate and was a graduate student. Why would he "snap" and do something so heinous? To me rigging your apartment with bombs to ill investigators and going to a movie theater to kill 12 people and injure 50 more is bat shiat crazy. To me, but not the law -- I'm not saying he's crazy, but his lawyers would be fools not to at least pursue the possibility.



Master Jedana and I discussed the rigged apartment and think was meant to go before he started shooting. The "phone call" was an alarm on the phone--went off after the loud music started up via timer or after the downstairs neighbor came up (some sort of trigger near the door, letting him know someone was about to go boom). The police would have been busy responding to the blown up building, giving him more time to go about the rest of the night---shooting the theater up and possibly making an escape.

That's not crazy--that's planning things out.

I don't see how the two are mutually exclusive. You'd have to be crazy to want to do any of that in the first place.

Well, that would be tough to put into effect, but I wish you luck.

Anyway, you do see the irony of your post, right?

Its a mobie-theater. What exactly is the expected behavior from patrons?

Being a dick should have consequences. We just seem to have differing opinions on who the dick is in the theater: the people being noisy, or the person who is upset at the disturbance (but still remains quiet), and posts randomly on a news aggregate site expressing his impotent frustration.

Happy Hours: Born to Die: retarded: I watched his court appearance on CNN and he looked like he was falling asleep. He kept nodding out and couldn't keep his eyes open.

A brain tumor would be consistent with the sudden violent behavior changes, his rambling and incoherent outgoing phone message reported by the firing range guy, and inability to stay awake in court. You read it here first.

anyone remember the guy in Phoenix who decided to climb out of his sunroof while driving?

I don't remember the details but he caught some sort of weird brain bug on some international trip.

At least he only killed himself. I'm too lazy to look for the story but it really happened - maybe 7-8 years ago.


Got it, and amazingly, the 'climbing out of the sunroof' bit is what's unusual about it, though at least the parasite gets some coverage (cystercosis):
